A self initiated project inspired by the beatification of the Archbishop Oscar Romero on the 35th anniversary of his assassination. Underline designed and published a newspaper to honour those martyred during El Salvador’s Civil War of 1979 to 1992. The newspaper unfolds to reveal posters that evoke four particularly shocking incidents and, through the use of direct quotes from sermons, essays and letters, communicate the profound commitment to justice of those who were martyred.
